We will be meeting at the farmer's field car park (£3 in the honesty box) between 09:30 to 10:00, when we shall walk together to the beach. Low tide is 6.30 am and high tide 6.30 pm approximately.
To get to the car park: at Monknash village turn off Heol Las to go past the Plough and Harrow pub and follow the lane for about three-quarters of a mile until you come to the car park on the left. Please park sensibly and don't leave any valuables visible in your vehicle.
To get to the beach: NB the walk is not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Walk down the lane until you come to a gate and a stile. The gate is locked, so you must use the stile. Follow the rough path down through the nature reserve until you come to another stile. Once over, the path opens out and at the end is a pebble beach. Turn right (north) and cross the pebbles and the flattish rocks, go round the first headland and you come to a wide expanse of sandy beach. We usually set up about halfway along.
- Parts of the path can be slippery, wet and muddy, even with recent dry conditions.
- Make sure you are wearing suitable footwear.
- Avoid the cliffs - this is an active coastline with frequent rock falls.
- Bring plenty to drink.
Late arrivals: if we've already left for the beach, just follow the above instructions and look out for a BN orange beach tent on the sandy part.
When we leave the beach we usually stop at the Plough and Harrow for a drink. They also serve excellent meals.
